Visitor Tips and News About Wonder Tower
My husband stopped at the Genoa Tower in CO and was surprised to find it boarded up. He chatted with the owner's son, who has no intention of reopening it. His dad died last fall. Though we only got there once many years ago, it has always been my intention to return. Such a loss to the roadside attraction community.[Ollimaleya, 04/11/2014]
Out of business after Jerry Chubbuck passed away in 2013. It was the most authentic tourist trap between Denver and Prairie Dog Town, complete with fake tourist dummies on the roof.
